The Nets desperately wanted Otto Porter Jr. before last season and now that the Wizards have essentially put their entire roster on the trading block, a Nets source called Porter “a perfect fit”.
Otto had a slow start so far this season, averaging just 10.6 points on 35.6 percent shooting from deep but at 6’8” he is a great option as a stretch four. The Nets would presumably have to send back about $20 million in salary in order to comply with league trade guidelines but the Wizards might also ask for a pick. Scott Brooks inserted Kelly Oubre into the lineup last night shifting Porter to the power forward position and Otto looked great playing 37 minutes and producing a double-double. He is currently returning top-75 value in 9-cat leagues and the buy-low window might be rapidly closing while a potential trade to the Nets could boost his value.
